Painting and writing, sometimes it's one and sometimes it's the other, but they are both favorite things for me to do.

I LOVE that painting! Lovey dubby Vic, I'm green with envy!

You do both beautifully!!
Sometimes you do both at the same time! As I'm familiar with your articles, they often paint a beautiful picture.

That's so sweet of you Vic! I did get to see it though --- Sharon SWORE me to secrecy --- matter of fact I didn't know who was going to get it. I really do love it. I told Sharon that's one I could hang in my home. You know how you can really like certain pieces of art but you wouldn't be interested in LIVING with them? This is one I could LIVE with.

It's a beautiful painting. I would have never thought that you would start with the background rather than the subject. Thank you for showing us the process!

Well gosh, Mary, if I painted the subject first I'd lay my arm all over it and smudge it trying to paint the background! Not to mention the fact that it would look like the back ground overlapped the day lily. Whistling I'm such a messy painter. Sticking tongue out (Teasing you, Mary.)

Seriously, I usually do paint the background first, but I paint all of it in layers, so it's just the back I start with, then I come back to it often.

Thank you, Mary Lovey dubby

And Juli, thank you. I'm sure as a daylily expert you'd find much detail lacking, but I didn't abstract it too much maybe.

you painted the *essence* of a daylily.... showing us its soul. Details detract from the essence of a soul (imo) Green Grin!

Capturing essence is what I try to do, both with words and with paint.
Sometimes I fail miserably, sometimes it works.

Thanks for 'seeing' that, Flit!!
